Blakes 7 Wiki
Advertisement

Rod was one of the two sons of the deposed ruler of Goth. He and his brother Gola had worked together to overthrow their father, then fought over who would succeed him as charl. Gola triumphed and Rod went into exile. He claimed to have supporters but was captured by a patrol of Gola's men. Blake rescued him, killing two of his captors and driving the others away. Rod said he was also an enemy of Servalan and Travis and offered to guide Blake to the tents of Goth. He also noted that his brother would kill Blake for his weapon but he would not.

After leaving Blake alone in the dungeons for a time, Rod returned to escort him to the throne room. He appeared to be receiving assistance from his sister Tara, who wanted to bring him and Gola together. Rod challenged Gola to a duel, naming Blake as his second. Gola accepted, with them both agreeing that he who lived would be charl. Gola triumphed, wrapping a chain around Rod's neck and then stabbing him to death through the chest. (B: The Keeper)
